    FMP sharing issues on Mac OSX server



      FMP sharing issues on Mac OSX server


           I installed FMP Advanced (12.0v5) on my Mac OSX Server (10.8.5).

           When I try to switch on "Network Sharing" under File>Sharing, I am getting this Error message:

      "FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on this computer."


      But I do not have FileMaker Server installed OR any other copy of FileMaker Pro installed on this machine.

           I tried re-booting the computer and launching only FileMaker Pro, same problem persists.

           Also, I can reproduce the same problem with the Network cable disconnected on my Mac.

           This is really annoying, the main reason I purchased FileMaker Pro is to allow Network sharing of files!


           Any idea or help will be greatly appreciated!
